Upbeat Hoosiers need road wins

Because those experienced starters are injured, Kelley has had to look toward his younger, less experienced players to pick up the slack. Of the four who have stepped in this season, only one is a regular starter, with the second most experience being 10 games played in the 1999 season.

Tennis players go solo

As the individual season rolls along, the men's tennis team will send players to two tournaments this weekend.

Senior Paul Jacobson, junior Rahman Smiley and freshman Bernard Tsepelman will compete in Stone Mountain in a tournament with all the best players in college tennis. The event will be unique, in that it will be crowded and individualized.
